Something new on Maui: Star Noodle’s StarsTruck

Share Button

On my recent trip to Maui, my friend Julie Yoneyama suggested a little tweet up with some social media friends for lunch so we could check out the new food truck outside Star Noodle. If you’ve tried to get in to the restaurant at peak hours, you know that it can sometimes require a one- to two-hour wait, and local residents just don’t have that kind of time on a workday.

The new venue, called StarsTruck, doesn’t serve the same food as the restaurant, but still offers a number of fusion-y items that are easy to take out or simply eat at the picnic table in front of it. At the moment, it’s just open for lunch, but they’re going to see how it goes as it becomes more popular. After lunch we visited Star Noodle’s sister restaurant, Aloha Mixed Plate, to sample their soon-to-launch poi bowls featuring taro that they grow, harvest, and pound themselves. Now, that’s really local.

At the time we tried it, they had not launched the poi bowls yet, so I don't have a price for you. But they were delish! This one is a lomi salmon and kalua pig bowl, which is one of my favorite lunches.

Is it just me or is chow fun big on Maui? Literally every restaurant I went to this weekend has some sort of chow fun on the menu.  That should catch on here on Oahu too...
